To close 2022, we present the results of the entire quarter of the extracurricular course taught by the team of the Architectural Thinking School for Children. This modular course, which derives from a consolidated experience, was launched this school year in Portugal, and the sessions have been held at Palácio Sinel de Cordes since September. The course covers migrant communities from various Eastern European countries that share a common language, since they belonged to the former Soviet Union, in addition to each country’s language. These communities have been growing significantly in the Portuguese capital.

The House exhibition displays the projects designed by 52 children, aged between 5 and 14, enrolled in the classes of this School founded in 2016. Visitors have the opportunity to discover how these children reflect and fantasise about their dream home, while applying the interdisciplinary knowledge acquired in classes on architecture, ecology, graphics, storytelling, contemporary art and more.

The projects in the exhibition were created as part of the Systems Thinking course, in which children learned to combine knowledge and skills from different disciplines to create one project, revealing a rich imagery that is shared here.

The Architectural Thinking School for Children is a project which works under the umbrella of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.
